The Safari Difference

Our journeys take you into Africa, not merely along its beautiful surface. You will enjoy different, convivial companions on different legs of your journey, as you explore the cities and towns, game reserves and remote valleys, mountains and plains on your chosen itinerary. At every location, you will be welcomed and accompanied by the most knowledgeable guides, trackers, and drivers who delight in sharing the treasures of their region. And you're assured a window seat on every plane or vehicle.

Active & Experiential

To enhance your African experience, your itinerary will include activities that facilitate exploration and discovery of each location. By foot, bike, or canoe, you'll be a participant, not a bystander.

As responsible travelers ourselves, we strive to reveal the whole destination, not just one facet. We guide your active exploration of the wildlife, environment, culture, and other defining features of the regions we travel.

While your CW Safari will truly be an adventure, your enjoyment and pleasure are always paramount. From the moment you land, our "meet and greet" service at the airport will set the stage for the ease of your journey–allowing you to relax and enjoy the cast continent of Africa.

Connect to Your Story

So many moments are special on a CW Safari. Every day, the mystery of Africa opens its heart to you. The golden sun warms your face as you greet the day on an early morning game drive...melodious birds sing and monkeys chatter as you tread quietly through the bush. Dishes fragrant with fresh nutmeg and saffron draw you to the table to share meals in the company of new friends. Days are filled with glorious adventure and blissful sleep well earned, under the umbrella of the starry African night. Share cultures, trade smiles, and feel the rhythm of a tribal village dance. Discover a new world in the beauty of a rare flower. Track a leopard as it slips into tall grass. Watch a lion stalking its prey. Our Safaris are full of unforgettable first sightings and lasting impressions. Which of these moments will be yours?

Pause Along the Way

There are so many places your journey will take you. From fine urban hotels and renowned inns and lodges to the excitement of bush-camping under the stars. These accommodations are so much more than shelter; they're exceptional destinations in their own right with magnificent views and proximity to wildlife. At every resting place, you enjoy privacy, serenity, and delightful touches of local custom. Thoughtful service and wonderfully varied menus satisfy every appetite...and tempt you to try specialties of local cuisine. From a picnic lunch on the savannah to sundowner cocktails in the bush, every detail has been attended to, every comfort carefully planned so you can immerse yourself in the safari spirit without a care.
